For me this is the episode where this season of Legion really got GOOD. Episode one felt like it spent a lot of time catching us up on what is going on, but here we finally get to dig into the meat of who these characters are and what they’re going to be trying to achieve this season. I noticed this week that the intercom warning people about symptoms of a Shadow King infection was missing. I have no idea what that means, but in this show everything seems to mean SOMETHING. This week David and Syd won me over yet again as a couple. The level of trust between them is so strong, and the way future Syd reacted to seeing David makes me more sure than ever that these two have a romance for the ages. Meanwhile Farouk and Lenny have almost exactly the opposite relationship. Farouk doesn’t tell Lenny anything, and only seems to be using her, but there is a hint that in his mind at least he’s protecting her from something. That relationship is the one I’m most excited to see evolve. Lenny is more and more likely to stab Farouk in the back when the opportunity presents itself, and I can’t wait to see how that plays out.
